Hi and welcome to Sprout Doula and Hypnobirthing Services.
I am passionate about birth and about supporting women and their families to have the best pregnancy, birth and post partum that they can.
I have two children of my own and my birthing journeys have presented me with many challenges. I have overcome these challenges by learning all I can about pregnancy and birth and seeking the support of like minded women – such as the Hypnobirthing Australia “family”. I completed the Hypnobirthing Australia course with Melissa Spilsted (founder of Hypnobirthing Australia) in preparation for my second birth. I found the techniques to be amazing! It was so lovely to spend time just enjoying being pregnant, connecting with my baby and looking forward to the labour and birthing process. Despite my birthing journey taking some unexpected turns I still loved the techniques and found them so useful that I want to share them with as many other couples as possible.
As a doula and childbirth educator I believe that pregnancy and childbirth are a beautiful physiological process and that a great experience during this time provides a firm foundation for facing the challenges of parenting. I firmly believe that, even when facing unexpected or special circumstances, couples deserve to feel positive, calm and confident and to have the knowledge needed to optimise physiology and utilise the amazing birthing hormones where they can.
I encourage couples to formulate their birth goals to suit their own beliefs, values and needs, research their options and take responsibility for making their own informed decisions.
I look forward to helping you plant the seed for your positive birth.
